My dad started herbalife a while back, but just the protein shake and meal replacement. I've tried it a few times as a meal replacement, but it does nothing for you in terms of energy (at least in my experience).
The ingredients themselves don't appear different from whatever else you'll find in any other protein powder. I say the energy you would feel (if you feel it) is a placebo, anyway. The best alternative for more energy during your workout is caffeine (pill or black coffee) and hour prior to exercising. Or blast some UMF beats (Garix, Ozcan, etc) and you're gonna fly through the roof
Always leave her better than you found her.
